(5 stars) This is a wonderful reincarnation of a 90's classic.
(5 stars) Great re-imaging of a childhood favourite - Lemmings.

LETS GO! ... OH NO! (or.. YIPEE!)

Caveman is a game where the goal is to guide Cavemen to the exit on the level.


Cavemen enter the level through an open hatch and walk aimlessly to their death or around in circles following the path outlined - specific skills can be assigned to Cavemen to create a new path and help guide the others to the designated exit.

The following skill sets are available:

- CLIMBER: scale those walls
- FLOATER: float down to safety
- EXPLODER: pop!
- BLOCKER: block the path
- BUILDER: build a bridge
- BASHER: bash a horizontal path
- MINER: mine a diagonal path
- DIGGER: dig a vertical path

Each level has a set of requirements to complete where a combination of skillsets may need to be used to solve the level - there is more than one solution available; how many cavemen can you save!

With four difficulty levels (easy, medium, obscure, insane) and 120 levels + hidden bonus levels - this game is guaranteed to bring you hours of enjoyment and gaming addiction!


A number of game play options exist to customize the game play to individual preference; assignment of tools can be via clicking on the caveman, clicking on the toolbar or both. The game resumes play on touch by default but this can be disabled under the options screen.


Mobile 1UP has worked very hard to ensure that all levels are solvable; a complete set of solution guides for every level are available on the Mobile 1UP website (high definition video and detailed walk throughts) - of course the challenge is being able to solve them on your own!


A special "unlock feature" has been provided where unlocked levels can be accessed via a special code; in addition to revealing special secrets of the game engine (easter eggs) - a complete list of the relevant unlock codes are available on the Mobile 1UP website. Some codes change on a daily basis - so be sure to visit often to find all the goodies that are available!


Caveman is a game inspired by the classic Lemmings developed by Psygnosis released for Amiga, DOS, et al in 1991. The project started as a port of the game, but due to intellectual property concerns the game was given a new set of graphics, audio and some custom levels to bring the game genre up to the standards expected by gamers in this era. The game was developed by Aaron Ardiri, the graphics provided by Tomas Miller, and the sounds were provided by Michael McGee.

Ratings and Reviews

Very Welcome Classic


Beautiful Implementation! Brings back pleasant memories

An amazing ode to Lemmings


As a huge Lemmings fan(I played It on every platform possible), I always wanted to be able to play it on the go on my iPhone and iPad. I know the developer got into some legal issues with Sony when he was working on a port and instead he created his own version from scratch and from the look at it, it is a gret game.

The game basically plays like lemmings, if you have played the game you won't be a stranger. The cavemen idea is smart since they are as stupid as lemmings(hehe) and the abilities work just the same. the controls work pretty well, you control both the mouse and the camera which seem to work great. the graphics are pretty very well illustrated and the music fits the setting very well.

The game however could still use some improvement but I know that the developer listens to the customers and he is doing all he can to improve the game(not to mention he will be adding more levels with each update) Here are some of the suggestions the game could use:

- Camera scrolling could be smoother
- Multitasking!!!
- Pinch to zoom
- Smoother animations maybe?
- Some kind of game center integration

I think it's a great app as is and with time I think it's just gonna get better with time. Buy it!

True to the original


If you liked Lemmings, you will like this clone. It is very true to the original. Okay, the cavemen are just a little less cute than the original lemmings but they still explode quite satisfactorily, just in much deeper voices. If fact the gameplay is better than the original because it is properly sized for the screen and the touch interface is better than using a mouse. There are a few other minor differences like the lack of the inset window showing the whole map but the premise is the same and Lemmings/Cavemen is one of the most addictive, fun and challenging arcadish puzzle games ever.
